The AGAT Foundation and the Michael DeSanti Centre were asked to host the 2021 Women in Leadership Event. Due to COVID-19 restrictions we made this event a virtual livestream following all of the COVID safety protocols. 

This event was hosted by Jason Copping, MLA for Calgary-Varsity and the Minister of Labour and Immigration and  moderated by the Honourable Leela Aheer, Minister of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women and feature guest speakers Geeta Sankappanavar, Marissa Reckmann and Catriona Le May Doan.

AGAT Laboratories - Tech Talks 2021

Each year Agat Laboratories hosts the Annual Tech Talks conference. The Tech Talks are usually hosted at a venue in Calgary but due to COVID-19 restrictions the talks were hosted virtually for the first time.

Many of the speakers filmed their pre-recorded presentations at the Michael DeSanti Centre, following local COVID heath measures, in the weeks leading up the the virtual event.
